Customer Question
Hi. I paid for...

Hi. I paid for an urgent parcel to be shipped to the US. But my courier misrouted it to the UK and it taking too long to start an investigation on the matter. They said that it may take up to 2 months and compensation is only up to $65. The value of the item is $300.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you in the UK or are you in the States?

I am in Singapore shipping to US

Lawyer's Assistant: What action has been taken so far? What's your ideal outcome?

I have called the support hotline which is a bunch of indians in a call center delaying my case by mispelling my email address, not following up on promised calls etc.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My ideal outcome is to find out if there is anything I can do to expedite this process of getting my item shipped to the proper address and if I can get any money back for damages. Thanks

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Was it insured?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Up to $68 only
Solicitor: Jamie-Law, Solicitor replied 11 months ago

If it was so urgent, why did you not insure for more?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I chose the fastest option, which was by Air mail. That was the highest insurance the courier company has.

You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund of the damages within 14 days or say will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.

If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.

The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.

If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

I purchased a brand new phone from USA when it 1st come out,
Ok, I purchased a brand new phone from USA when it 1st come out, It became faulty and had or have a deal with PAYPAL to return the phone for a full refund. I was only allowed a cost of £15.00 to return the phone. It is worth a refund of $759.00. Anyway, I used a Parcel2Go.com for the very 1st time in returning the phone back to the USA. I dropped it off at the designated parcel shop and it went with the hands of My Hermes to take to the Over Seas depot for transport to USA. I posted the phone back on the 28th June 2017 and the tracking has stopped at the 30th June 2017 stating given to the My Hermes driver to take back to the OCS Depot. I have sent a letter stating negligence as the parcel has just disappeared. I was not aware of insuring the item as it was a faulty return with an expected refund amount coming back to me. As now the item is nowhere to be seen, all apparently I am entitled to is the £12.49 cost of sending the parcel. I feel violated and am sure the parcel has been stolen by the courier. I am just wondering if I have any legal anything legally I can do to get the full cost of the failed service back. I have had a look on the parcel2go.com website at their terms & conditions but not really sure what to look for. I am sure consequential loss comes into the equation but more of a failed service by neglect. Any info would be required please? I have the original purchase receipts and all info if required. … read more
